Werther's Original is a brand of candy that is owned by the German company August Storck KG, based in Berlin. The candy is named after the town of Werther in Westphalia where the company was founded in 1903. The sweets were originally marketed under the brand name Werthers Echte in 1969, but were switched to their current name for the international market in the 1990s.
The original Werther's Original candies that were produced under the name Werther's Echte were a caramel-flavoured hard candy. Despite the candy's early flavor classification, there remains doubt as to whether the candy should be classified as caramel or butterscotch because of their hard texture. Because the sweets are made using dairy products such as cream and butter, in addition to caramelized sugar, they are characterized as a caramel. The company released other varieties of their signature hard candy, which include chewy toffees and a soft, waxy variety of the original candy that melts inside the mouth easily called Caramelts. The company also released a variety with a chocolate filling and three sugarless variations that include caramel, caramel coffee swirl and caramel mint swirl flavors.
